Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that Tristan Bérubé of the Gatineau Olympiques is the Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week for the week ending December 17 after posting a 2-0-0-0 record with a goals-against-average of 1.00 and save percentage of .970.

Bérubé turned aside 65 shots last week backstopping the Olympiques to a pair of victories as they enter the holiday break with eight straight wins and an overall record of 20-10-2-2 just four points shy of first place.  He earned first star honours on Wednesday with 37 saves as part of a 4-1 win over the Drummondville Voltigeurs, then made 28 saves on Sunday in an historic 4-1 outdoor victory against the Ottawa 67’s.  Sunday’s game was the CHL’s seventh outdoor contest but first played between interleague competition before over 11,000 fans in the nation’s capital.

An 18-year-old from La Pocatière, Quebec, Bérubé is playing in his second season with the Olympiques after being a sixth round choice of the Voltigeurs in the 2015 QMJHL Entry Draft.  He currently carries a 12-4-1-2 record but leads all QMJHL netminders with a goals-against-average of 2.00 and save percentage of .928.

Also considered for the award this week was David Tendeck of the Vancouver Giants who posted a 2-0-0-0 record including a shutout victory stopping 61 shots for a goals-against-average of 0.50 and save percentage of .984.  In the OHL, New Jersey Devils prospect Evan Cormier posted a 2-1-0-0 record including a shutout victory with a goals-against-average of 1.80 and save percentage of .955 while becoming the Saginaw Spirit’s all-time shutout leader with six.
